The fruitlessness of having such relationships does weave its way into our minds, showing us reasons that we are better off without them, yet, we turn a deaf ear to our conscience and keep going. The amount of time and energy we waste caring about these relationships is enormous. Our head senses how we make no difference to these people, yet our heart fails to react, beating wildly for them day in day out. We waste copious amounts of our thoughts on them, when in fact, we could use that precious time for the betterment of our own life. Our heart beats for them, wasting its valuable energy for someone who least deserves it. Realising our stupidity, we do try and divert our attention to more deserving people, but for a few moments, after which we are back to square one!
Why does this happen? Why does our heart find it so difficult to know the difference between good and bad, caring and indifferent, love and disregard? Why do we find it so tough to let go of such people, bury such relationships for good and move on with our life? Why do we disrespect ourselves so much so as to give importance to someone to whom we may not even matter?
Can we be a little more strong to be able to break away and move on?
Can we show ourselves some respect and sever the ties that fetter our hearts and souls, leaving us handicapped for life?
Can we just let go of those who control our minds and our souls, leaving us gasping for air?
Why can’t we just lose them, and move on?
I am sure we can. All it needs is a little bit of patience and a whole lot of bravado!
